But...the Premier's MP number needs to be added to the reservation to ensure it happens. At that point, both will have the Premier benefits.

Unless you have a nice agent, yes.

I'd suggest changing the return leg to something farther out, and using it another time - as a 1K you should be able to change O/D (within the same zones).

Remember - a flight within EU even on partner J will still cost the "UA" number of miles. So you can fly EWR-FRA-IST as if it were UA metal.

What website worked to book these?
